Teenage singing sensation from Killearn, Tallia Storm, met musical legend, Nile Rodgers, when she sang at the Barclaycard British Summertime festival recently.

Nile Rodgers was fronting his band Chic at the event in London’s Hyde Park on Sunday, July 15 as part of the impressive line up of music acts, with other performers including Jennifer Lopez, Lionel Richie and a surprise performance by Simon Le Bon.

The 14-year-old soul singer, from Killearn, shot to fame last year after performing in front of an audience of 15,000 when she supported legend Sir Elton John at his only Scottish concert.

The schoolgirl sang at the concert after meeting his partner David Furnish on holiday in America and giving him a CD of her songs.

Sir Elton called her the next day and asked her to perform at his gig.

She was unfazed as she sung to the crowd at Falkirk Football Stadium and afterwards thanked Sir Elton, adding, “You have changed my life.”
